[success]Plant seeds of expectation in your mind; cultivate thoughts that anticipate achievement. Believe in yourself as being capable of overcoming all obstacles and weaknesses. ~ Norman Vincent Peale[/success] Would you say that you’re so strong that nothing can get between you and your peace of mind? Do you have tactics that help you manage that feeling of being battered by the storms of life, by overwhelm? Do you tend to speak of health, happiness and success and how everything is easy?  Or do you tend to speak mostly about how busy you are and how you don’t have enough hours in the day. We’re all living busy lives and heaven knows we’ve probably got more demands placed on us than ever in our modern world, all of which are, of course, uber important. Whatever is going on in your life right now, this minute, whatever facts you’re faced with, however…

[success]The big challenge is to become all that you have the possibility of becoming. You cannot believe what it does to the human spirit to maximize your human potential and stretch yourself to the limit. ~ Jim Rohn[/success] The whole point of life is to live the way you want to. Not to be overly concerned with fitting in. Not to try to be what other people think you should be. And most certainly not to allow your current experiences to sway you from following your heart. You want a brighter tomorrow, to live free of pressure, to be in control of your own life, to be unafraid. And living a trouble free live would be a huge bonus. Yet we can’t live the way we want to whilst we are: Slaves to outer circumstance Too often we let outer circumstances determine our thoughts and if we keep on thinking…

[success]Healthy discontent is the prelude to progress. ~ Mahatma Gandhi[/success] Remember when you started your latest and greatest project and you were all fired up, excited and ready to go? Or was it the beginning of your most wonderful easy diet…or maybe a fabulous spiritual path that you’d started to walk? And almost before you had time to blink all that enthusiasm bit the dust. It’s become a chore.  Even worse you’re not sure you want to carry on. You ask yourself? Whatever happened to passion? Where’s enthusiasm? Has it clocked out forever? Whatever happened to motivation? Nothing happened. It just needs a little boost. Think of motivation like a fire, without adding any fuel it’s going to go out. Now you’re in a state of dissatisfaction.  Not a problem; change your perspective and view it as divine discontent.  Life with a capital L is always for greater expansion and…

Oh would some power the gift to give us, to see ourselves as others see us. ~ Robert Burns Yes I translated it from the actual Scottish which talks about gifties and gies because even I, a Scottish lassie, have to think about it and I didn’t want to impose the mysteries of the Scots language on you! I’m nice like that. How do I know if I have negative beliefs, when I’m not aware of them? I was asked this recently and thought it such a great question that I needed to write about it. Whilst pondering the question the words of Robert Burns…that old Scottish poet got stuck in my head. Rabbie Burns, as he’s known in the land of his birth, is a great reminder of how your world is exactly the way it is because it mirrors precisely the beliefs you hold. And it’s pretty easy…

[success]Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt. ~ William Shakespeare[/success] It happens to us all. We’ve all had those doubting, self-critical thoughts: I know I’m going to make a complete fool of myself. How about I’m going to make an ass of myself…heavens to Betsy.  What if I invest my time and money not to mention energy and I still mess it up…in other words I fail. They’re much younger, better, more intelligent, more capable and already more successful than me…I’m such a loser. It’s okay.  We’ve been trained to deal with fear and self-doubt in ways that aren’t helpful: by resisting it, or relying on over analysis to quell those dastardly thoughts and we can end up believing we’re pretty pathetic for experiencing them in the first place. When I first started to study Neville Goddard some…ahem…years ago it…
